    They've got some mighty good Detroit-style Coney Island hot dogs there, but you can get those elsewhere.

    In any case, they're not worth dying for.

    Re: Which City is America's Worst

    I have been to every city on the list except New York. That said without a doubt my pick is Chicago. Been there about a dozen times for work and I dread going there every time. Overcrowded, rude, dirty, ruthless people. On top of all that the politicians are the absolute worst in the country. If it wasn't for Chicago, downstate Illinois would be very prosperous.

    Obviously there are some exceptions as I have some very good friends that live there. They seem to love it so good on them. But as far as that list goes Chicago is the last place I would want to spend any time whatsoever.

    Graceland to me just felt too cheesy... But yes Memphis has that. Oh and that hotel with the ducks.

    People typically live in the outlying cities like Katy, Woodlands or even Pearland and then drive in.

    It's not politically correct to say but Chicago is a great city when you stay within predominately white neighborhoods.

    That would be East Saint Louis, although Saint Louis is not too much better.
